The aim of the South Bank Spine Route public realm project is to improve Upper Ground, Belvedere Road and their connecting streets.

Lambeth Council is investing in the South Bank area, improving the public realm - the outdoor spaces like streets, pavements and open spaces - which are used by thousands of people every day. It's a big project and we want to work with the local community to involve you in the planning and design.

The South Bank Spine Route serves a diverse mix of pedestrian, public and private vehicle users. It is a main crossing point from Waterloo Station to the many cultural institutions along the South Bank.

This project seeks to improve the Spine Route, taking account of the ways in which it can support its key functions more efficiently, and identifying opportunities for it to further contribute to the area’s success as a place to live, work and visit.

The Council has commissioned award winning urban designers, landscape architects and planners LDA Design to develop a masterplan, detailed public realm designs, and delivery plan.

Following an initial high-level engagement with various local stakeholders and a thorough analysis of the area and background information, the LDA Design team have developed a number of masterplan options.

We have prepared the short video below to take you through these masterplan options in more detail. We recommend that you watch this video before completing the online survey. A transcript of the video is also available to download via the link below. You can also view the video slides.
